Had a New Belgium Old Cherry tonight. Had very high hopes going in, to be honest. I was dissappointed. After having the likes of Kasteel Rouge or even Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat, I think I have potentially unrealistic expectations for the cherry beer genre.
I believe the only way you can get this beer right now is in their Folly Pack, but to be honest, I am not sad.
The beer was very blah. Smelled of cherry, has cherry on the label, but just fell short of giving me a good chery flavor. Very mild and does not blend well. Feels like the underlying beer is potentially Fat Tire, and then they threw in a dash of cherry for good measure. Doesn’t feel like it was truly brewed with cherry flavored goodness in mind.
